Welcome back to Newsroom Notes! For those of you that were reading this blog and other content on http://www.logisticsmgmt.com, welcome back! For those that were not, welcome!

As our Group Editorial Director Mike Levans said in a previous posting, LM-and its sister publications Supply Chain Management Review and Modern Materials Handling-are now Peerless Media LLC publications. Peerless is a subsidiary of Framingham, Mass.-based EH Publishing.

While we have not been part of the EH family for all that long, things are going great so far, and we are thrilled and thankful to be in such a terrific situation.

So, now what? Well, for starters, you can expect high quality editorial that you have come to expect from LM over the years, whether it be in the form of online news, blogs, Webcasts, etc. So, in that sense, not much has changed.

Personally speaking, it is my mission every day to find news and information that you will hopefully find interesting, useful, and relevant. That said, it is not an understatement to surmise that NOW is a great time to get back to blogging, given the myriad issues and topics that are floating around these days.

And as the economy slowly recovers, there appears to be an undercurrent of optimism in the freight transportation and logistics marketplace. Naturally, there is a fair amount of uncertainty, too. But at the end of the day, ask yourself this question: Are things better today than they were a year ago? Hopefully your answer is yes.

This answer may be based on increased customer demand for shippers and increased shipper demand for carriers and providers. Seeing how I am not a carrier or shipper, I am basically reading the tea leaves here, but it seems like there has been more good news than bad news of late (the European economy situation notwithstanding….), so let’s see what happens as we head into the second half of 2010.

In closing, again, welcome back to Newsroom Notes. You can expect to hear from me once or twice a week, and I look forward to your thoughts and comments.

Best, JB
